  • Roots of the Immigration Crisis: The Reality in Mexico

    July 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Boulder Mennonite Church, 3910 Table Mesa Dr, Boulder, CO 80305, USA

    Immigration is at the forefront of national dialogue. Most of what we hear is related to border issues and border security, or ways to transform or restructure the immigration system. The reality in countries south of our border is discussed much less. It is important that we understand and address the root causes leading people to leave their homes and come to the United States.

    Soila Luna, General Coordinator of the human rights organization, Fundación Don Sergio Méndez Arceo, Cuernavaca, Mexico will present a panorama of what is happening in Mexico, and the challenges and hopes for the Mexican people with respect to food security, protection of human rights, and protection of the environment. Soila’s life calling has been work for social justice in Mexico.

  • History of the U.S. Immigration System - Educational Forum

    July 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
    2959 N Franklin St, Denver, CO 80205-4511

    Growing awareness of the U.S. government's network of concentration camps has brought a new wave of people across the country into the fight for immigrant rights. Many people are asking, "How did we get here?" This is a key question for the movement to answer. The brutal U.S. immigration apparatus wielded by Trump was built up by successive administrations before him, both Democrat and Republican. The only force that can take on this bi-partisan creation is a mass movement independent of both major parties.

    2. Helping people released from immigrant detention to reunite with their families

    This includes:
    *picking up immigrants from the detention center
    *bringing them to the Casa
    *working with them on travel logistics to get home
    *eating a meal together
    *providing transportation to the airport or bus station

    The training aims to help us all become better companions to those experiencing oppression through our unjust immigration system.

  • 2019 One Colorado For All Statewide Tour - Louisville

    August 5, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
    Christ the Servant Lutheran Church 506 Via Appia Way, Louisville, Colorado 80027

    As the state’s largest advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Coloradans and their families, we’ve worked hard for the legal and political advancements we’ve achieved. And – there’s still so much work to do.

    As many of us know, legal equality and representation in elected offices does not eliminate the lived equality gap that affects many of us in our day-to-day lives.

    We are excited to announce our 2019 One Colorado For All Statewide Tour with seventeen stops all across the state, taking us from Grand Junction to Fort Collins, from Steamboat to Alamosa, from Pueblo to Aspen.

  • A History of Race and White Supremacy in the U.S.

    August 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    Belong Church, 1615 N Ogden St, Denver, CO 80218, USA

    How did racism emerge as a such a pervasive social structure in the U.S.? What is the reality of "race"? Why do so many people still have erroneous beliefs about race's influence on our destinies? It's a question many of us have asked at one time or another, and it has a clear answer.

    Race is a social construct, a tool for oppression. In short, racism is real, but race is not. Race also has a definitive origin story, and one that every anti-racist or social justice activist should know. Join this training to learn a brief history of racial classification in the U.S., and how it influences our mistaken perception of race today, and its implications for anti-racist work in the future.

    This is a low cost community training, suggested ticket price is $20, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Attendees and supporters are invited to donate via Venmo @Regan-Byrd, Paypal (reganbyrd@yahoo.com), or in person at the event.
